Inaugural Moray Disc Golf Sunday League at the Craggan Course

3rd May Moray Disc Golf Sunday League

Despite a poor forecast the conditions were far better than expected for the inaugural Moray Disc Golf Sunday League round at the Craggan Disc Golf Course. Light cool winds and the odd spit of rain did not hamper the spirits of the nine players for the day. A quick coffee was enjoyed before selecting from a wide range of some excellent brand new Prodigy rental discs.  We then set off to play in two groups of a four and five.

John Smart was first on the scene, followed by the MacGregor family with a warm welcome to Satinder joining in for her first round. Finally a car load from ACE including first time player Iona Laing, daughter of Fergus Laing the course designer and owner.

Many thanks go to Fergus for a very well designed and kept course that is well signed.  The moisture on the grass gave way to some excellent skips and the wind direction was opposite the prevailing norm giving way to some thought for disc selection and fabulous long cross wind holes.

It was a nail biting finish on handicap scores of 68 between Robbie MacGregor and John Smart with Robbie pipping John at the post and snatching yet another disc with the sudden death play off for the Disccraft Buzz Disc prize that was kindly donated to Moray Disc Golf by Trevor Bechtel.
